Sgt. Bill Dropinski was arrested at the Horseshoe Casino in Council Bluffs in February. Investigators said he got into a fight with casino employees. His attorney said the confrontation was verbal only and occurred while Sgt. Dropinski was off-duty.
In Iowa, some defendants with no criminal record can make a charitable donation and the case is dropped as part of a plea deal. Dropinski donated $250 to Children's Square.
